City linked with Maicon bid

The big MCFC transfer rumour today is in The Sun: a £20m bid for Inter and Brazil right back Maicon. If Ian Ladyman's report that Hughes is keen to upgrade at right back is correct then this makes perfect sense. Maicon is probably the best there is at right back - good enough to keep Dani Alves out of the Brazil team - and he would seriously improve City. Whether he could be convinced to leave Inter in January - with a chance of winning the Champions League this year and certainly Serie A - so close to the World Cup? I'm not so sure.

I would think the answer is a definite no, as you said yourself - "with a chance of winning the Champions League this year and certainly Serie A - so close to the World Cup"

Maybe in the summer?

Can't see Inter getting anywhere near winning the Champions Legaue this year, they're a pretty dismal outfit.
